My name is Amy...
and I am addicted to starting projects without finishing my last one (or two or three).

Right now I have a afghan on the crochet needle, an afghan on the needles, a dish cloth patchwork blanket on the needles, dish scrubbies, a baby hat and am wanting to start a market bag!!!

what do you have on the needles?

The ways of Yarn are inscrutable.

I never start a new project without finishing the current one.

Well, except for the fall colors sweater, the white turtleneck, a couple of hats, and that pesky scarf I have yet to finish.

Other than those, I never start a new project without finishing the current one.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

I'm knitting this. It is about 90% knitted.

The LARA by Debbie Bliss.

Btu, I'm using this yarn:

And I'm experimenting with several yarns and scarf patterns.
So there is a scarf on the needles with NORO Silk Garden...but it's getting frogged soon.

I have 10 patterns that are paired with yarn, and set to go soon...but one at a time.

I've been trying real hard to work at one thing at a time, and actually get something FINISHED! I get so excited and distracted by all the beautiful knits that folks share in the WHATCHA KNITTING forum! So, I've tried real hard to finish "A" before starting "B". The only exception is if "A" is taking a lot of time to 'block'. Then I treat myself to a new project on the understanding that as soon as the pieces for "A" are dry, I STOP my work on "B"....and get "A" seamed and finished off!

That's the plan anyway!

I keep around 4-5 projects at the same time. I like the variety - they are of different weight yarns, different kind of patterns. Right now i have a lace hoodie, lace stole, worsted weight shawl, pullover and socks. So when i'm tired of tiny needles and holes, i turn to the pullover and the other way around. It keeps boredom away

Righ now: Steppe Sweater for Warm Woolies charity, prayer shawl, test knit sock, eyelet baby sweater for charity, baby blanket for gifting. The most I remember having at one time was 7 and I almost had an anxiety attack over it! When I have to go buy more row counters or some other accessory, I know it is time to back off and get some things finished!!

Right now I have so little inclination to knit right now because of being sick, it's just as well that I've only got two projects going right now: a cardi of the Hand Maiden Sea Silk, and some knitted cakes for the window of our favorite caf here in Dingle. I do have yarn and plans for a shrug for myself (it may turn into a cardi, actually!), and a bunch of Christmas projects as well, also another Louisa in another colorway of Thalia for myself, but I'm trying not to do those til I get the cardi done, otherwise it may never get done!

OTN: Eyelet Chemise in Handmaiden Sea Silk (colorway: Midnight). Still. And a purple Donegal Tweed set of fingerless mitts, to try out my new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles.

Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.

I have several projects in the works at the moment. I just finished the back of a hoodie, two fronts to a kimono and the sense of accomplishment is great. When I finish the project entirely I add another for the variety. So I am like Knittingnat.
I will never stop learning or sharing my knowledge!
